Silverstone Classic

Retro Run


The Silverstone Classic RetroRun is a road run for classic cars (pre-1997 or those of special interest) that takes place as an integrated part of the event. 

The RetroRun starts on the Saturday morning of the Silverstone Classic from a location close to the circuit, and participants can opt to take part in one of two routes that are carefully selected to provide a fantastic driving experience. The routes take in special places of interest before reaching a conclusion right in the very heart of the event on Saturday afternoon with an exclusive, dedicated area inside the circuit for displaying all the RetroRun cars.

The following day, RetroRunners then have a unique opportunity to drive their cars around the iconic Grand Prix track in a revered parade lap on the Sunday.

To express your interest for the 2018 RetroRun, please email: RetroRun@silverstoneclassic.com.

The package includes:

  • Two adult three-day event tickets for the Silverstone Classic
  • An ‘infield’ vehicle pass giving special access to a display area with other RetroRunners within the heart of the event for all three days
  • Visit to a place of special interest for two people
  • A ‘Tulip’ style road book for your chosen route
  • Rally plaque for your car
  • A unique opportunity to drive your car around the iconic Grand Prix track in a revered parade lap on the Sunday of the event


Full details on the RetroRun, including details of the routes for 2018, will be available in the RetroRun brochure which will be available for download when tickets are available in early November.

Please note: RetroRun is a fun drive experience (no aspect of it is a speed event nor a competition).
